Excellent value and great idea to combine these two fascinating subjects --tractors, diggers and dozers with a book about the speed of things. I'm an adult and looking for fun educational books for my younger cousins to read.. This book ticks all the boxes of relevant, fun and curious-out-of-the-box info about machines and automobiles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love facts and figures about all things mechanical? 4 July 2014

If so, then you will enjoy this compendium of man-made machinery that moves. From equipment that has been built to assist man and ease the burden of labour to devices created for fun and thrills. Lots of information for those who like to know what, how and why. Kids young and old will enjoy the facts and images contained in these two books. A recommended purchase, especially in this two-book bundle. Great value.
5.0 out of 5 stars So many types of heavy machinery 1 July 2014

My nephews were kept intrigued for the few hours it took for them to explore this book. It is amazing how the tractor has evolved over time to serve specialized services, the most impressive being the spaceship tractor.

This author kept the book fun with a tractor naming game and humorous with the digger dog.

The second book in the bundle was also a delight with many endearing pictures. Starting off with a brief history lesson, the book covers various modes of transportation ranging from the simple tricyle to the rocket ship.

Truly a great value.

This is a really great set. It has wonderful photos, histories, and unusually interesting material about these cool, big machines - and about the (some pretty crazy) vehicles in the Speed book. Both books have much better information than you usually find in typical kid's books on tractors and race cars, etc. that we've read.

Both my 6 yo grandson and 8 yo grand daughter were so interested they burst out with lots of questions that I couldn't answer, so off we go to the library tomorrow to learn more. . . and that's great!
5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal to sit down and read 30 Jun. 2014
By AJN Kenwright - Published on
I bought one of these books when they were first published and this is an added bonus to have the two in one package.
The information is exactly pitched at the enquiring mind of 6 to 9 year olds and they are the kind of books that grandparents (like me) should buy for their grandchildren. Ideal for birthdays and Christmas and surprise gifts when you visit. Lovely books where you can sit down with the children and describe the action from your own experiences. Will bring delight to both you and the children. Highly recommended.

This 2 book bundle is great for kids who love machines and speed. Tractors, Diggers & Dozers is a fun introduction to heavy equipment. Kids will learn about what the machinery is used for and its history. My nephew loved looking at the photos and talking about both the machinery that he has seen on construction sites and ones he's never seen.

He really enjoyed How Fast Does It Go. There were so many fun cars, boats, gliders and planes. It was neat comparing their speeds. He especially loved the Martin Jetpack, Water Jetpack, and the Jet Powered Flying Wing. It was great to discuss many of the vehicles because they were new and exciting to him.

This book bundle is perfectly written for 6-8 year boys and girls. It's full of great photos and information and will trigger a child's imagination. Highly recommend this fun book bundle!
